Default Slowdown in low-midgrade stuff

Posted By: Anson

Anyone noticed a plateau or slight decline in $$$ realized for low-midgrade prewar stuff? I'm wondering if tax season, gas prices, the alignment of the planets, etc...have something to do with it?

I think the recent emphasis is on higher grade non-rare cards, particularly by the new money from those cashing out their bullion related material.

It won't last. Most of us can't afford that stuff and IMO, the high grade, common stuff isn't that exciting anyway.

I have not noticed, but my guess is that if there is a slowdown, it would not be related to higher-end stuff. They are really different markets, at least in the time-frame you are suggesting. But I have not noticed a slowdown. But perhaps you are noticing a slight cool off due to a lot of people having recently spent their wads in the flury of recent auctions.

i have to agree with jimb. there seems to be a recent flurry of interesting things to hit the marketplace since the big auctions as people have "blown their wads" and then some and are selling some dupes or whatever to help cover costs.

Good point.
Curious to see how 707sportscards does with their cornucopia of T206s on as BINs on eBay.

It couldn't be a bubble? Could it? There was lots of "cheap" money in the economy recently, especially with interest rates at historic lows. People were pulling money from their home equity, etc.

I'm hoping this stuff drops through the floor. A correction of sorts. Maybe, just maybe, all the speculator collectors will get scared and start a sell off.... ok, maybe I'm dreaming a little bit but it would be nice to see the prices drop a little bit.

Low to mid grade what? Maybe in commons, but I haven't seen it in the HOF'ers.

A bubble perhaps. Could be like the one last seen around 1929. Crude is up, home prices are up, stocks are up, precious metals - thru the roof. This could certainly lead to a correction. It sure did in the 30s.

Is it time to sell yet? .... No, wait...Let me sell first.


But seriously: baseball card prices will continue to rise, they always have.
